The house article is a great example and it makes a lot of sense but it also ignores history like everything else. You must always remember we broke into someone else’s house first. This "house" was not just sitting here empty. Not only that once we broke in we built up trust and used it to take advantage of the situation until we kicked the homeowner out. So if you are ticked off at someone else breaking into our house you undermine it without acknowledging that we did the same thing. I am sure lots of natives to this land sat around going how the heck did it get this way. Why didn't we stop them when we could have? Someone surly must have proposed building a wall around the settlers.
I believe in the rights and freedoms of a person even when I don't support them on a moral or fundamental basis.

Folks, got this in the email recently and agree with it a hundred precent.

I am a legal American citizen and I must show my ID when:
1. Pulled over by the police
2. Making purchases on my department store credit card.
3. When I show up for a doctor's appointment
4. When filling out a credit card or loan application
5. When applying for or renewing a driver's license or passport
6. When applying for any kind of insurance
7. When filing out college applications
8. When donating blood
9. When obtaining certain prescription drugs
10. When making some debit purchases, especially if I'm out of state.
11. When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel
I think there are more instances, but the pint is that we citizens of the USA are required to prove who we are nearly every day. Why should people who are here illegally be exempt.
I am for Arizona a hundred precent

This is so right what you wrote sam and I think that crux is right that there really are more good patriotic people like us -brave to speak more now after that election.

I used to see illegal aileens everywhere when I could drive and it made me really mad when I see them driving just like they are as good as real Americans. And then after those accidents that were not my fault at all and they took away my license and wont even let me take the tests anymore then I know things got really bad. The illegal aileens and the liberals took over the government and they get to drive but they won't let good patriotic Americans like me drive anymore at all. I think it stinks is what, huh?

So they should round up all those illegal aileens and put them in a big bobbedwire fences real high and then ship them all away where they came from good riddance, huh? And when they come here to have babies just to get around the law then they ought to maybe have to hold in the babies until they get sent to some place over the border, that would be a smart way to teach them and if they have a lot of pain too bad cause they deserve it. I am disgusted with all the liberals giving lots of bleeding heart rights to those illegals when my husband cant even get jobs and they wont give me a drivers license so the whole thing stinks and we should all maybe do more of the second amendment remedy stuff and teach them a lesson once and for all, huh?

Our lawyers wont even talk to me anymore about the drivers license so maybe I can see BenKline for him to help cause he says good stuff about illegal aileens sometimes and might really help cause it's about time maybe.

To say in is IRRELEVANT is to miss completely, or obfuscate totally the point, which is that ID is required in every day life in a myriad of ways. Government issued ID. Which is why the claim of "vote suppression" due to the requirement of voter ID in most states is so silly...

1. You have come here illegally and purposely ignored U.S. law and violated this nations sovereignty.
2. You have colluded with unscrupulous employers to illegally take jobs that should be going to U.S. Citizens.
3. You have colluded with unscrupulous government employees and officials to receive government benefits that should be for U.S. citizens only.
4. You have forged documents to obtain benefits afforded only to U.S. citizens.
5. You have colluded with unscrupulous employers to illegally avoid paying taxes.
6. By your presence of millions of low-wage earners, you have contributed to the decline in the wages for the middle class U.S worker.
7. By your presence of millions of low-wage earners, you have contributed to the growing income inequality in the U.S.

Congratulations. We feel these attributes have earned you the right to be a U.S. citizen. Here is your citizenship papers and your voter registration. Please remember to vote Democrat.


The double think at work here is beyond belief. So on one hand he wants "border security" but on the other hand he says illegal alien invaders that are already here have a right to be here and that people who want to be citizens have a right to be citizens. So what is the difference between the illegal alien invaders already here and the rest of humanity that wants to be here, other than location? How can the head of the DHS say that border security is important while simultaneously advocating for citizenship for people that illegally crossed the border? I'm just in awe of the hypocrisy and double speak. In a sane country, such rhetoric from those charged with defending our sovereignty would be considered treason.

I expect soon, we will have the following headlines:

"The head of the DOJ states that criminals who have murdered and raped have earned the right to clemency if they have successfully avoided apprehension for 10 years".

"The head of the IRS states that tax evaders have earned the right to keep the money they have successfully evaded from the government".

"The head of the FBI states that bank robbers have earned the right to keep the money they have stolen".

The supply/demand argument is always valid. The undocumented alien estimate at 11 million (not all are workers) is about 3.6% of the total population of 305 million, about half of whom work.

Under the presumption that immigrants are more likely to work for low wages (true?), yes supply does influence labor price. How much is the realm of argument by economists.

But I'm pretty certain that the economy's loss of $Trillions in recent economic setbacks had very little to do with poor people's wages, citizen or immigrant. It had everything to do with lax financial regulation, wild speculation, and off-shoring of manufacturing, lowering of taxes for the wealthy, and the withering of unions.

These grew mostly out of the decisions and activities of the most affluent among us.

Raising the minimum wage to $10 or so would help to balance things more equitably, but those same affluent "deciders" will fight it until their last breath.

Dear Congress,

Our borders are being assaulted by refugees........ children seeking asylum from Central American countries where conditions are what we call in dawgpatch really, really bad. They're not coming here to steal our jobs. They're coming here to have a life.

This is not a matter of boarder security. Security is stopping and rounding them up at the boarder.

Now What?

We can show them our darker side, treat them like criminals, arrange to crush their delusions of safety and happiness and arrange for their eventual return to hell after sheltering them in kennels like stray dawgs for a time as our own wayward children (you) pout and stamp and soil diapers while deciding their fate.

Or.....

Cowards that you are, perhaps the opportunity has presented itself for you to actually stand up for the principles those Founding Fathers you so adore, envisioned.

Now, Coondog knows that the boarder states, due to misplaced ethnocentrism or because somebody's great, great granddaddy died at the Alamo, will never succumb to comprehensive immigration reform at the federal level. Never going to happen. So, let's explore States Rights, near and dear to many of your cold hearts, for however long your attention span can maintain attachment to a singular issue.

What if individual states were able to decide, independently, whether or not they wish to formulate a methodology for sponsorship for refugees? What if those churches we're supposed to count on and social welfare organizations and just plain caring citizens, as well as state governments, took upon themselves the responsibility for this sponsorship whereas these people might assimilate, under supervision and with charity and decency, into a society that resembles the one they expected to find after such an arduous journey?

Even the meanest, most despicable members might vote for a measure that allows them to slough off the responsibility to somebody else more willing to deal with it. And these children, thus relieved of the perpetual fear for their lives, may actually prove to be more amicable and receptive of social norms than your own privileged, uncontrollable brats.

Think about it. A humanitarian gesture may prove to be a positive example to our own population, currently bent on violence and inhumanity, and to the world in general. You may even dispel some of the self loathing you must surely feel given your history of dysfunction and failure.

Hopefully you will afford some due consideration to these humble and, hopefully, helpful suggestions.

Yours is out-of the-dawghouse thinking that ought to make xenophobic, bible-thumping, states-rightsers scratch their mange in contemplation.
